Has any one ever fished Cleawox lake, I have heard its good for trout, but what else is in it, I haven't ever fished it, but I always go to Siltcoos atleast once a year for the annual Perch Tournament and i have never thought of stopping at Cleawox. Munsel is a very good lake around the coast, and one of the cleanest that I know of.

No it's not. I don't even think there's a boat ramp there. You don't even need one, it's really more like a very large pond.

Never fished Cleowox. Just Siltcoos every year for more years than I care to mention. If you have fished Siltcoos recently, how has the perch bite been? It's been slow over the past few years but I'm hoping it will rebound. How has your luck been at Munsel and have you ever tried Mercer?

Yes, Cleowox does have a boat ramp. It does have a lot of trout. It's also a good place for fly fishing.

Funny we grew up going over there all the time as kids to go swimming there and never really seen anyone fish it other than for perch on the dock near the dunes. Remember seeing some big fish underwater though. Someday I might have to fish it

I live about a mile & a half from Cleawox & fish it often. Lots of planter trout in there & best fishing is from the first stocking in February through about the end of april. There are still some MONSTER bass in there too. Unfortunately there is a large hydrilla problem in this lake but the further west you get in the make the less there is. I suggest going off the dock on the south end of the lake. 3 foot long 2lb test leaders, 1/2 an oz of lead & some chartruese power eggs is a pretty solid way to limit. Hope somebody gets some use out of this
